San Leandro Creek Master Plan Update

September 2, 2015 

In September of last year the City Council, along with many other stakeholders, applied for and was successful in receiving a $200,000 grant from CalTrans. The purpose of the grant is for a study that will identify opportunities and constraints regarding development of a creek trail.

If such a trail were eventually developed following public input, it could provide a valuable community amenity for walkers, runners, and cyclists. However, the City does not expect such a trail to be feasible in all locations, particularly in areas of the creek that abut residential properties. Furthermore, the City has not initiated a bidding process for actual construction of a trail, and there are no plans in place to begin construction at this time.

To ensure community input in the development of a plan, the study will include, at a minimum: 4 Technical Advisory Committee Meetings, 4 Citizen Advisory Meetings, 3 Public Workshops, and 3 Focus Group Meetings.

For more information about the project see the complete press release and the project web page.

7:30 PMMurder in the Library - Death at the Royal Ascot

Join us for another all new Murder in the Library production!

Our play takes place in the Royal Enclosure at the Royal Ascot, the most famous horse race meet in England, and perhaps the world. The year is 1954 and England’s Cream of Society is eagerly awaiting the most prestigious race of the entire meet: the Gold Cup Race with the prize money totaling a staggering £500,000. The Gold Cup Race famously coincides with “Ladies Day,” a day when ladies show off their spectacular hats and ensembles.

But Death and Misadventure lurk just outside the confines of this regal frivolity. Who will bite the dust? Who will stand accused of throwing the race? Who will win the Gold Cup? Take your seat in the stands, fix your binoculars at the finish line and don’t blink your eyes.

The San Leandro Public Library is proud to partner with the San Leandro Players once again for the seventh annual Murder in the Library play. Use your deductive skills to figure out who did it; but remember, there’s no butler in this play!

Admission is free.

No ticket registration. First come, first served seating basis.

For more information, please call the Information Desk at (510) 577-3971.
